White Russian Cupcakes

I found this recipe on Pinterest. Baked Perfection's blog featured the recipe and I was inspired!! Carter's associates loved these cupcakes. Thanks Baked Perfection!!!

White Russian Cupcakes
makes 12 cupcakes (it truly makes 12 cupcakes) I made 4 batches

1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 cup sugar
6 TBS butter, softened
1 large egg and 1 egg white
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup milk
1/8 cup vodka
1/4 cup Kahlua, divided

Preheat over to 350 degrees. Line the cupcake pan with paper liners.

In a large bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside. In a separate bowl or in a stand mixer, beat together the sugar and butter until combined. Add egg and egg white, one at a time. Then add the vanilla, vodka, and 1/8 cup of Kahlua. Gradually add the flour mixture in the three additions, alternating with the milk in two additions, ending with the flour mixture.

bake 17 - 20 minutes. I had to bake mine for 16 minutes, but my oven bakes hot. The toothpick should come out clean  when inserted in the middle.  While the cupcakes are still warm, brush the tops with the remaining 1/8 cup Kahlua. Remove from pan and cool completely on a wire tack before frosting.

Kahlua Buttercream

1 stick of butter, sfotened
2 cups powdered sugar
pinch of salt
 3 - 4 TBS Kahlua

Beat butter until creamy. Add salt. Add powdered sugar 1 cup at a time, beating until combined. Add Kahlua 1 Tbs at a time until you reach desired consistency.

They are awesome!
